In most cases, the financial aid a student is to receive each term will be automatically credited when the student confirms full-time enrollment (at least 12 credit hours). Any funds awarded in excess of the direct charges due and payable to the institution will normally be made available to the student at the beginning of the term.
Checks for excess financial aid funds will be available the first day of class if the student early registers as a full time student. Aid will not be processed until the student's financial aid file is complete. eRefunds
are available through Student Account Suite and will allow the funds to be in the eRefund account prior to the start of school as long as the student has correctly set up the account and confirmed
Financial Aid is applied as it is awarded and received. You must accept your financial aid electronically on your WebOPUS
account. Go to Financial Aid
for more information.
When financial aid exceeds the amount of institutional charges, a refund will be made available. The initial refund is created for the student when all aid credits at the same time. If the Federal Direct Parent Loan disburses after other aid has credited, a refund will be produced for the parent borrower unless designated otherwise on the Federal Direct Parent Loan promissory note.
